Austin Books/Brian O'Halloran event

A plethora of Powerhouse Animation artists went to Austin Books and comics to celebrate an appearance of Brian "Dante" O'Halloran. Brian, always a genial and stand-up guy, signed comics and memorabilia for fans while Powerhouse Animators drew sketches of characters from the Clerk's cartoons.
(L to R, Sam Lotfi, Brian O'Halloran, Ronnie Williford (kneeling), Brad Graeber, Aaron Romo and Chris Beaver)

To help celebrate, Powerhouse Animators re-enacted scenes from the cartoons. Guess which scene Ronnie and Brad are doing:

Sam Lotfi and Aaron Romo got in a heated argument about whether or not the Grimace could actually be killed. If you don't get that joke, may we suggest this.

Nicole Petta, who took all of these great photos was able to get on the other side of the camera for shot with Mr. O'Halloran.

A good time was had by all.  Forgot how much fun it was to draw these characters.  Here's to hoping that one day we might get to again.
